The 1813 Dump was one of the first coins struck in Australia, the other was the Holey Dollar.   Not only are they extremely rare today, but their fascinating history has made them two of the world’s most famous coins


The 1813 Dump was created from 40,000 Spanish-American Silver 8 Reales procured by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1812.  Macquarie’s aim was to increase the number of coins in circulation. It was a remarkably successful plan, with the Dump and the outer ring, the Holey Dollar, becoming the lifeblood of the economy until the 1820s.

 When legal tender status was withdrawn in 1829, most were swapped for British currency or melted for the silver, and it is thought less than 1,000 Dumps exist today.

Design and Grade

Underpinned by good detail in the lettering and crown, and featuring remnants of the original Spanish-American 8 Reales host coin, we have this highly desirable colonial coin available in good Fine grade.
